Oil Lamp Theater has wonderful ambiance, including a delightful fragrance throughout. When you enter the lobby we were greeted by Keith, the owner, who points out the "freebies": homemade cookies, deluxe mixed nuts, and pop. Because it is fall, he had warm apple cider made from his own recipe. There are couches and chairs to sit in and sip (BYOB if you wish--he'll open the bottle for you).
The theater itself is cozy (maximum 50 patrons) and has open seating. The cast were each excellent in their very different roles. And the audience was able to share in the celebratory chocolate cake after the show.
Going to Oil Lamp Theater (our third time) is truly an EVENT.
About the Ticket Supplier: Oil Lamp Theater
Oil Lamp Theater was originally founded in February 2005 as a by-invitation-only theater group. The Theater was dedicated to the preservation of a traditional theater experience in unique and original venues. Keith Gerth staged 20 productions for up to 35 friends and guests each night in his home, a condo in Lakeview. The name of the company comes from Keith’s childhood, where due to the rural nature of his hometown, they lost power often and used oil lamps to light the house. This brought the family closer and created a beautiful soft and intimate glow. In March 2012, Oil Lamp Theater was incorporated as a not-for-profit theater and has established its new location in downtown Glenview. Our new venue provides seating for 60 guests.
